Quotable Greg Glassman, the founder and owner of CrossFit, on the topic of diet:
- “CrossFit has a nutritional element to it, it’s not just movement… and if you’re going to make me get rid of something, I’m going to get rid of the exercise.”
- “Nutrition is the bedrock part of it. First thing, cut your f*&%ing carbs and NOW get up.”
- Practicing CrossFit without any regard to nutrition is similar to only having “one oar in the water.”
Having mentioned all that above… the Whole 30 Daily begins. When you sign up, there is a $14.95 cost which includes a daily email that is full of useful information. Sign up with Saturday, September 16th as your official start date. You will get an immediate email that confirms you are on day ZERO until that official start. There are PLENTY OF THINGS TO DO to prepare. So “day zero” might take you a few days. Get started preparing!
Our team for the Whole Life Challenge is building- it ALSO begins on Saturday Sept 15th. Click here to join our team. We hold our official preliminary WOD that same morning at 8:30am. We follow up after the BIG WOD at 10:30am with a food tasting event put on by Territory Foods. You don’t want to miss this: a time to eat a bunch of different prepared foods that have MANY complaint options for both the Whole 30 and the WLC! More info on this in the coming week. You don’t want to miss out!
Do you even DARE continuing your CrossFit journey without doing something about your nutrition? Without getting that other “oar in the water?!”
